so with a non-live video watched via stdout there is no resume ... 
that's bad.
What's happening in that case? the video simply stops ???
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to resume in this case as well?
Could be accomplished by e.g. allowing output to a tmp-file (to read the 
last valid timestamp) and parallel output to stdout, or find another way 
to get the last timestamp
